Menlo-Atherton Bears to Move to Action to Help Alleviate Blood Shortage
Original post made by Kelly Todd on Jan 14, 2008
Some area hospitals have been asked to postpone or even cancel suregeries due to the shortage. O negative blood is the most precious right now since it is the universal donor type. Universal means that it can be given to anyone in an emergency.
The Menlo-Atherton Bears will be hosting a blood drive this Friday, January 18 from 8:00am-2:00pm in the Blood Vans in the front of the campus facing Middlefield Road. The Bears are looking to help their community members one pint at a time.
